Lindsey Wohlman, Yellow Warbler (2014), digital manipulation on archival paper, 12 x 18 inches.

In Resurrecting Audubon’s Birds of America, Wohlman comments on the works of eighteenth-century naturalist and painter James Audubon by photographically recreating his work. The photographer’s project was motivated by the contradictions she sensed between Audubon’s unethical treatment of birds and “what he says about the essence of our relationship to birds and nature.”
